Time for action — creating the basic file structure

To create the project folder for Treasure Chest, we have to do some things first:

  1. Create a folder called treasurechest, in a location you like.
  2. Next, open the baseMonkey.script file, from the resource files of the book for this chapter, and save it under the name treasurechest.monkey in the folder you created before.
  3. Copy the treasurechest.data folder from the chapter's data folder to your project folder.

What just happened?

You have set up the project folder for the game. The file we will now work on is treasurechest.monkey.
